AMBA-ACCREDITED

Euromed Management


Age: 139

History: Founded in 1872 by the oldest Chamber of Commerce in the world in Marseille, the school has been a leading provider of management education at a regional, then national and now international level. It is one of the top 10 Grandes Ecoles in business.

Address: Domaine de Luminy, Marseille, France.

Ambience: Located in the strikingly beautiful Calanques region to the east of Marseille, the campus is colourful, open and friendly. The school has a strong Mediterranean identity which is reflected in its research priorities alongside sustainable development. It also promotes responsible management, and has a research chair in the subject.

Vital statistics: In 2003, ESC Marseille-Provence became Euromed Marseille School of Management, which was recently shortened to just Euromed Management in 2008. The school has seen substantial growth in recent times, now having more than 4,400 students and 72 professors, and with double accreditation from EQUIS and AMBA. It has more than 80 participants on its Shanghai MBA (taught in English).

Added value: A pro-active policy towards sustainable development and a "Euro-Mediterranean approach" to management issues. A strong emphasis is placed on personal development, with students encouraged to pursue their own individual learning paths. 65 per cent of elective modules are given in English or languages other than French.

Easy to get into? For the MBA, a good GMAT score is required as well as a TOEIC or TOEFL grade. There's a selection interview, and all participants must have at least three years of professional experience.

Glittering alumni: Emmanuel Guyot, director general, Digitick; Stephan Brousse, president of the French Employer's Federation for South France.

Gurus: Bernard Cova, creator and author of Tribal Marketing; Yahia Zoubir, editor-in-chief, Global Business and Organizational Excellence; Walter Baets, author of The Hybrid Business School.

International connections: Has 128 agreements with partner institutions throughout the world, and MBA participants are required to spend some time abroad in Sao Paulo, Bangalore or Marrakech. The school has eight campuses, including Algiers, Marrakech, Peking and Shanghai.

Student profile: MBA participants come from all over the world.

Cost: The Mediterranean MBA is €25,000

Return on investment: Most graduates soon achieve senior management positions, and several recent alumni have started their own company or bought existing businesses.

Who's the boss? Bernard Belletante is the director general.
